Daisy and Tallulah were minding their own business in a field in Hinckley, United Kingdom. Perhaps they were grazing or swatting away flies with their tails when out of nowhere they were attacked by unknown perpetrators wielding knives
Daisy, a 7-year-old Shetland pony, and Tallulah, a 6-year-old miniature horse, were subsequently stabbed a total of 27 times.
When their owners Brian & Donna Poole found them later they both were in serious pain. Daisy had been stabbed in the face while poor Tallulah had to endure nearly 20 different cuts delivered by some vile human being.
This isn't an isolated incident, two other ponies belonging to the Pooles were attacked with a bottle and pelted with stones and eggs just three months ago. This time, the attack was much more violent. If it is the same attacker as last time, it seems like their acts are escalating.
Someone is harassing and abusing helpless animals in the Hinckley area and they must be caught, and not just for the safety of the animals. People who commit violence against animals are likely to move on to humans. This potentially dangerous menace must be taken off the streets. Please sign the petition and tell Leicestershire Police to continue their search for the horse attacker and prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law.
